I am going to try to keep it as simple as possible.
A. Our 2012 OL was better in pass and run blocking than in 2013.
B. Our 2013 offensive weapons (Wallace, Hartline, Gibson/Mathews, Clay) were better than 2012 (Hartline, Bess, Mathews, Fasano)
C. In 2012 we scored 288 total offensive points.
D. In 2013 we scored 317 total offensive points.
Why did we score more points in 2013 (Actually 10% more points which led to 2 more victories) when we had a worse offensive line? Jeopardy theme song................... Because we have better offensive weapons.
From the facts above we can infer that:
1. worse OL + better WR/TE > better OL + worse WR/TE
2. By drafting a game changer offensive weapon TE/ WR in the first round it should/ will lead to more points and more victories as opposed to drafting OL.
3. By drafting an OL in the first round will not lead to as many points scored or victories as opposed to drafting TE/WR game changer.
One last thing i was going to create a fanshot on this other topic but I decided to just stick it in here. I been doing plenty of simulated mock drafts lately and as some have stated I would not be opposed to a trade down ( I think one of this guys will be there later in the 1st round: Amaro TE, ASJ TE, Kelvin Benjamin WR) to pick up an extra 2nd round pick. There are almost 100 underclassmen who have declared for the upcoming draft (highest ever in the history of the draft) and I think there will be plenty of value in the second round.
Check out this website that allows you to do simulated mock drafts with trades. I think this website might be better than fanspeak.com
PS Warning this website is more addicting than the fanspeak.com
